George North ‘in talks’ with Northampton

GEORGE North’s agent has said the Scarlets and Northampton are in talks over a possible move for the Wales winger.

The 20-year-old has one year left on his contract with the west Wales region, and helped Wales retain their RBS Six Nations title with a record 30-3 victory over England in Cardiff.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to France, but Christian Abt said discussions are being held with the Saints. He told the BBC: “There has been an approach between the two clubs to discuss a possible transfer. I don’t think it will drag on too long,” he added.

“I think these things need to happen quite quickly if it’s going to happen so that each party knows where they stand.”

When contacted, the Scarlets said they would not discuss players’ contracts publicly, while Northampton also declined to comment.
